Social Media Ambassador (Virtual)

Registration for this project is not open for self-registration. Please contact the project organizer listed below for assistance with registration for this project.


Project Description:


Use your social media skills for good!

The Social Media Ambassador Program is a way for volunteers to boost Food Bank of Alaska's mission, amplify resources for Alaskans facing food insecurity, and serve as an online representative for Food Bank of Alaska, all while earning verifiable volunteer hours.


In our current time of social distancing, this volunteer opportunity is an easy way to make a BIG difference for neighbors in need. Join us today!


We are always actively recruiting for more Ambassadors, so please help us spread the word about this new program!



How does it work?

Every month, we send Ambassadors a newsletter with information about food pantry resources, upcoming initiatives, news stories, or statistics about hunger in Alaska. Ambassadors are also encouraged to write their own posts about why they volunteer with Food Bank of Alaska or why solving hunger is important to them.


Your social media accounts don’t need to be verified or have a certain amount of followers to participate.


What are the responsibilities?

  • Post at least once per month on the social media platform(s) of your choice (including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, website, or blog). Ambassadors can post either on their timeline/feed or their "story". Posting more frequently is encouraged!
  • Email the Manager of Volunteer Resources screenshots of all your posts for the month.
    • Each post is worth .25 hours of volunteer service.
  • Follow Food Bank of Alaska on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
  • Have a basic understanding of how to share and create quality content on social media.
  • Have online followers who reside in Alaska.
  • Be at least 18 years of age or older.
  • Be kind, professional, and cordial as an online representative of Food Bank of Alaska. 

What if I'm not very good at social media?
Everyone has a different comfort level, but we're all getting more used to a virtual life. You don't have to be a pro or have a million followers to be an Ambassador. You just need to know how to share posts on social media and have a passion for sharing our work. The goal is to spread awareness - that looks different for everyone.


Is there a possibility to be removed from the program?

Yes. It is not ideal for us but sometimes necessary. The following points below are some reasons to be removed from the program: 

  • Consistent lack of engagement on your social media platforms in helping us to promote our mission and programs.
  • Posting that does not align with our social media campaigns (ie posting about Hunger Action Month in March instead of September).
  • Posting any language and/or photos (including personal posts) that do not reflect our mission and values, detailed here.


How do I sign up?

Please click here to fill out the quick and easy application form. The Manager of Volunteer Resources will reach out in 1-2 business days. If the account you'd like to post on is private, Food Bank of Alaska will request to follow you on that platform. Please accept our follow request so we can make a determination about your application. Applications are approved on a case by case basis.
